Habby Eeser!

Photobucket

You guessed it:  Just in time for Easter, I caught a spring cold.

I hab a code in my doze.

Doesn't mean I can't share the simple, sweet prettiness of eggs dyed by Dear Daughter and the Pre-Schooler though!

Whatever Easter means to you, I hope you have a ~lovely~ day!

(I'm off to track down some more Puffs Plus with Aloe)

Sunday Became the Day...

... I discovered another use for cupcake liners and gift bag paper shreds.

Oh my... it was a good day in the crafty nook!

Spring Sweetness

Photobucket

When the family and I returned from our Disneyworld vacation, a sweet crafty spring egg was waiting for me, destined to be displayed next to a spring mâché and fabric bunny in our entryway.

Peach, white, and minty green papers create a nested pocket for a sweet bird and her little eggs, the creation of one of my favorite bloggy/crafty friends, Laurie.

Oh yes, the "awww" factor is high for spring and Easter this year!  Thank you Laurie, and be on the look-out when you check the mail over the next week or so!

Crickets Chirping

Have you heard them here at Twigs and Tulle while I've been away?

**chirp chirp**

Where did I go?  No crafting, no photos, no links, no liberal applications of glitter, tulle, buttons...

**chirp chirp**

Report card time took up many of my work and after-work hours...

Then the family and I went to meet these fine characters for the ~very first time~:



Dear Daughter traveled to a powerlifting competition where she broke and set three new powerlifting records for her weight class (strong girls are COOL)...

... and I was surprised to find that a bump on the back of my leg was a tumor.

Yuck.  The "t" word.  Thankfully it was benign, and I spent yesterday morning at the doctor's having it removed.   Good riddance!

Between teaching, traveling, mothering, all of the aforementioned and tracking down a master salt cellar for my mother's birthday, time escaped me.

Does that happen to you?

Dearest Sheila and Kelly have asked me to teach a paper bunting class this May, so I'm busily creating a prototype this week.  Never fear, I'll post the details about the class a.s.a.p., and will also catch you all up on the fabulous blogs I discovered during One World One Heart (February).

...not that the crickets' music is bad, but I've missed blogging.
